Oh, but don't ask your ISP why they can't do faster speeds for cheaper when other ISP's around the world are doing it, because "Its just not possible for it to be done and the company to be sustained".

I prefer the model the japanese ISPs have to follow. No data tiers, no speed tiers. This way the only way to seperate yourself from your competition is by either lower price for the same speed or ridiculous speeds. Fuck this poor ISP cry me a river bullshit. Regulate their asses.

Seems to me that we're doing fine without these rules...

And I want my speeds to increase 50% every year. Uploads too.

If the provider can make demands, I, as a consumer, can too.

And the ISP should be held responsible for everything that travels over their network: spam, theft, fraud, child pornography.

I call for an independent commision to conduct the same research.

Again Europeons not understanding economics. If ISPs currently cannot afford to stay in business then they will fail. Then you have less supply which raises prices which gives the remaining ISPs more capital to invest. Simple economics, supply and demand. It dictates everything.

"how can we keep our top executives swimming in cash if you don't give us more money! we will cap bandwidth at 10GB before our CEO goes without a private jet!"

I second that. It's not like these companies really put alot of this money into "upgrading" their networks. We would like to believe they do but the sad fact is that they just maintain them. That's it. Like for example, people who still don't have access to broadband in the U.S. mainly because they are not available in their area.
